How do different cultures treat heirlooms their history?
Thats an incredibly fair and just argument. There could be many cases for things to be re-used, or recycled rather than stored. What about the small things, the little things we keep as momento's, that hold more memory and sentiment than a photograph? Thanks for replying.

Is there a future for family heirlooms and physical memories?
I hope your last statement to be true, I just fear for very young generations, as a whole, might lose touch with this knowledge and history. Everyone is different and many young children do love history, going to museums and watching documentaries, which I think is fantastic. I just have a theory that this love of the past will become less and less as time goes on Thank you for your reply.

Thats a sounds argument, I do believe that to be true in many cases. Perhaps many large institutions do hold too much onto past ideals and outdated traditions - economics, paper money, politics even, are all incredibly ancient things. My argument however is a little closer to home. You're completely right about how we may attach too much emphasis on historical traditions and holding onto too many memories. I'm think I'm trying to ascertain the future model of passing on specific key memories through a family rather than an entire life's worth - through design. I believe there are certain key moments in people's lives that define them, define their future, have some bearing on how they raise their children. I fear we may be losing this connection of genuine 'lineage', knowing where you came from. Again thank you for your response, damn good argument!
